they are at present the case sowler composite and san francisco is halfway through the pack there down to about 33% and so whole values are still off from where they were before but if you look at where we are from the low point until where we are today, san francisco is looking a little bit better and oakland is not a member city and they randomly take 20 cities that are plead broadly representative of the housing market and san francisco is the second line on here and posted as one of the naysest paces of recovery and so we get some help from residential construction and we also get help from securelier spending this is what i'm showing here and this is the debt service ratio and it's an interesting concept if says if you add up my mortgage payment and car payment and any other kind of consumer debt that i carey and how much of that is a% of personal disposable income and where we are at relative total whereas 30 years that service ratio is about as low as it's been during anytime at that period and is there any reason that the fed tries to lower interest raid and rate and drive the cost of hous
the golden dome of the palace of fine arts and what more perfect way to come to san francisco through that gateway. >> it will be an amazing transformation. now you read it as one section, the road is a major barrier and then a wonderful strip along the water. all of those things are going to mesh together. >> right now the road really cuts off this area from public access. and with the new road, we will be able to open up the opportunity in a new way. >> this bunker that we see now is out of access for the general public. we are excited to completely rework this side and to open up the magnificent views. and what we want to do is add to this wonderful amenity and restore this coastal bluff area and respect its military history and the doyle drive project is allowing us to do that recorrection. and this area is not splintered off. >> and we can see how dramatic a change it will be when doyle drive is suppressd and you have a cover that connects the cemetery to this project. it's historic on the statewide and national basis, but you could rush the project or put thought and time to cre
the sequesterer. in the sequesterer list which is the list of impacts of san francisco was the removal of chunks not all but a chunk of the central quarter what is going to happen to the funding for the sequesterer for the city? i think it's a matter of planning commission interests >> if the sequesterer changes the funding for the central quarter it's going to impact south of marketing and maybe people on south beach. the sea level rise i think you deserve to have a presentation from someone who was expert in the area not a cheerleader in the sea level rising area. and if there is, in fact, a plan support by mayor's office and enthu enthusely sponsored by the mayor's office to eliminate a chunk of you 80 it's a land use issue. so this is your opportunity to ask for hearing. i can't ask for hearing and i'm pleading with you get the information on what the sequesterer monies are going to do to the city. we shouldn't have to read it in the paper. thank you >> is there any additional public comment 1, 2, 3, 4. >> okay seeing none public comment is closed. >> commissioners that will place you u
an extended family of about 25 san francisco firefighters clul my father who served on the san francisco fire department. my main certain is fire safety. members of the commission this project is unsafe from a fire standpoint. basically because the fir people call the escape route is grossly inadequate. first of all, the san francisco fire code provides that i must have an assess road or an escape route a minute of 25 feet wide unobstructed. this project allows parking on both sides of the street that reduce the width of the road to rou roughly 15 to 16 feet. this project is flat out in violation of the san francisco fire code in that the roads escape roads are not 20 feet wide unobstructed and continuance. the second point equally important is anybody who has studied forest areas first of all, it's dangerous to have only one escape route but if you have an escape route that is less than 20 feet wide it's asking for problems. example one is the height lands disfavor in 1991 in the oakland fire. that particular tragedy was that people tried to leave. 11 people died including 6 going in their c

of government. mayor lee first began working for the city and county of san francisco in 1989 as the investigator for the city's first whistle blower program. prior to employment with the city and county of san francisco, he was the managing attorney for the asian law caucus. i first met ed in 1992 when he became the executive director for the human rights commission and we were both 16. that's two decades ago, ed. i watched him soon become the director of city purchasing and then going on to become the director of public works. i think ed is the only mayor in city history that can carry tlau on the campaign promise to fill the potholes because he actually knows how and he's the only mayor in city history that can say he actually knows every single city street because his crews probably paved them. i have had the privilege of working alongside ed for many years in city government. he has always been a cherished colleague and friend to everyone in city hall. he's done the job, he gets the job done, never wanting credit, just the satisfaction of doing the right thing for th
